Mr. Kitchln Warns tthe Republicans
Representative Claude Kitchin,
of North Carolina, made a gener
al assault on the new tariff bill
under license of general debate on
the postoffice appropriation till
in the House to-day.
Telling a number of stories of
starving children and of working
men appealing for food in the
large cities, .Mr. Kitchin conclud
ed each tale with the statement :
"And all this under the Al-drich-Payne
bill, which no one on
the Republican Bide has the cour
age to defend."
Mr. Kitchin declared that the
bill was well named the "AU-Rich-Paiu
bill a blegsing to all
the rich and a pain to the hungry
people of the country."
Reading from newspaper clip
pings of distress among working
people and of large profits earned
by the' beef trust, Mr. Kitchin de
clBired that afc the very time the
Steel trust was earning such great
profits, men who helped to make
them were taking their little chil
dren from school to assist in the
support of their families,
A lively exchange of words took
place between Mr. Kitchin and
R preventative Gardner, of Mas
sachusetts, over the price of food
Reading from the testimony of
Secretary of Agriculture Wilson
that meat products of the Ameri
can farms were being sold in Eu
rope cheaper than in this country,
Mr. Kitchin said:
"It is not true that the farmer
had benefited by the high prices.
Pi ices for farm products were
higher in 1893 under the Cleve
land administration than ever be
fore, and statistics show that."

The last legal hanging for
North Carolina took place Friday
at Elizabethtown, Bladen county.
Heury E. Spivey was the vio
tim and he was convicted before
the law providing for electrocu
tion was enacted. The execution
ha3 been delayed by appeals and
respites . An appeal was made
to the Governor for commutation
largely on the ground that hang
ing is cruel and barbarous.
Spivey killed his father-in-law in
a most atrocious manner because

Channel Held the Flood Work of Dredge
There wa9 the biggest freshet
Monday on Clark's creek since
last May. People hare been on
the lookout for just such a freshet
ever since the dredge was put to
work to see, what would happen.
The new obannel held all the wa
ter and there waB not an overflow
anywhere until the eddy water was
reached just above the boat.
Neither was there any deposit of
sand anywhere above the eddy
water at Battle bridge. Here it
was only a foot deep and will be
swept out by the first freshet af
ter the boat moves down the
creek, People all the way up the
creek are delighted with the ditch.
A few hours after the rain ceased
the water had falleo to a normal
depth, aud there was none stand
ing over the bottoms.
The whole country was fl oded
around the boat Monday and it
was moved a little to one side of
the ditch, but was gotten back
with little trouble and started to
work again at midnight. Newton
